Orange is in. Use it liberally in your garden

Uplifting and energetic, orange is in right now, and it's sure to give your garden (and you) a boost. Use a mass of orange flowering plants to mirror the fiery shades of a summer sunset. Or pair orange with chartreuse for a vibrant, tropical look, or combine it with complementary blues for a cooler effect. Here are some of our favorite orange bloomers.
